Inspector George Zammit investigates a body floating in Valletta’s Grand Harbour. He soon finds himself entangled in an international criminal plot. Set against a backdrop of the world of oil smuggling, the turmoil of North Africa and the seemingly unchecked corruption in the Southern Mediterranean, worlds collide, with disastrous results.

AJ Aberford

Formerly a lawyer, property company director and, latterly, the owner manager of a Yorkshire craft brewery, AJ Aberford has now retired and turned to writing during the lockdowns of the pandemic. A move to Malta provided the inspiration for the Inspector George Zammit series of five crime and adventure novels set around the Southern Mediterranean. Malta sits midway between Sicily and the North African coast and provides a fascinating backdrop to his writing that draws heavily on organised crime, political corruption and regional conflicts. He loves travel, Mediterranean food, adopting stray cats and riding his bike to secluded swimming spots.
